In addition to its fascinating electrical and mechanical properties, graphene is also an electrochemically stable and transparent electrode material. We demonstrate its applicability as both anode and cathode in a light-emitting electrochemical cell (LEC), an electrochemical analogue to a polymer organic light-emitting diode. Specifically, we summarize recent progress in carbon-based metal-free light-emitting devices enabled by chemically derived graphene cathodes on quartz and plastic substrates, and explain the advantages of using LECs in manufacturing large-area devices.
